You do not say which operating system is being used. I am assuming since you moved the router and PC downstairs that you are talking about a wired connection? However, in both instances

First thing to do is to check the LAN settings.

If you are using windows 7 Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Network and Internet, and then click Internet Options. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Connections tab. Click the LAN Settings button - there should be a tick in the "automatically detect settings".

Then you should look at TCP/IP settings - again in windows 7 Start-Control Panel - in search box top right type in "adapter" In Network sharing centre - choose view network connections Right click the network - should be Local Area Connection - click on Properties Go onto the networking tab and scroll down to IPv4 then click Properties Click "obtain an IP address automatically" - click ok

These are the instructions for XP.

As there was a previous connection maybe the first thing to do is to check that drivers are up to date.

Click on Start - Settings - Control Panel
Double click on System
Click on the Hardware tab at the top of the System Properties page
Click on Device Manager

Click on "other devices" and you should find Ethernet Controller -right click - when this is expanded right on this and click - update driver.

when this is done switch off the PC and restart it.

IF NO LUCK -

Try:- Internet Explorer click tools internet options advanced click "reset", which resets default settings

If still no luck -

click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options

On the Connections tab, click Never dial a connection, and then click LAN Settings.

In Automatic configuration, tick the Automatically detect settings

Open Network Connections

Click the connection you want to configure, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

If the connection is a local area connection, on the General tab, under This connection uses the following items, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.

Go onto the networking tab and scroll down to IPv4 then click Properties Click "obtain an IP address automatically" - click ok

Good luck
